2013 Clipper Tub/Shower water shutoff?

Weve noticed a bit of moisture pooling below the tub spigot in our 2013 Clipper whenever we hook up the city water connection... but we never use the tub or shower. I can only assume the water supply to the faucet is leaking... albeit very little. There wouldnt happen to be a convenient shut-off valve hiding that would just kill water flow to the shower?

Planning to take it in for service to repair whatever leak is happening anyway...

Thanks in advance.

Just pull the four screws holding the faucet on and pull it out to check. Could just be a loose fitting on the valve. 2 minutes to check it could save you from having to take it in for something so easy to check first

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

Now being told the water pools after using the kitchen sink. Will check the hoses under the cabinet. Any other thoughts?

If you are saying the water pools at the shower after using the kitchen sink... not uncommon for a leaky fitting.

As the water supply pressure raises and lowers from use at another faucet or spigot, the leaking fitting can drip more/less from the fluctuating pressure.

Are you using a water pressure regulator? If not maybe you're putting too much pressure on the system.

Yeah, we always use a regulator. We started using one of those with our old popup and (thankfully) had the good sense to continue using it with our Clipper. I just wish there was a full shutoff valve for the shower. We never use it, never plan to. Keeping the water out of it would make winterizing easier too.

Sounds like a summer job, track the water lines back and cap them off.
